Starting 2018-2019 school year, we are opening one DUAL LANGUAGE classroom in Primary!

(ages 3-5, pre-kindergarten)

Details:

  • Classroom made up of 50% Spanish speakers at home and 50% English speakers at home.
  • The Montessori curriculum will be taught in a 90/10 ratio: 90% in Spanish and 10% in English.
  • Follow a full Montessori model. The hands-on Montessori approach supports learning new content in a second language with two bilingual teachers, one lead, and one assistant.
  • This Bilingual track will grow into the FREE charter elementary in the 2019-20 school year with Kinder/Lower El to be approximately 60% Spanish/ 40% English, and Upper El to be 50%/50% split.
  • The goal is for children in our Bilingual track to leave Monarch Montessori Charter fully bi-literate and bilingual.

Tuition and fees:

Tuition remains the same for the primary classroom.  There will be an additional material fee  ($500 in the Fall and $500 in the Spring) to cover the additional costs of Spanish language Montessori work as well as the additional costs of employing a
bilingual teacher. The enrollment fee will be $150.
